Rockville, MD (PRWEB) June 27, 2011
The future starts with education; medical coding and billing is a competitive field and the need for qualified and skilled coders and billers grows daily. Medical billing schools vary and programs typically cover courses such as anatomy, physiology and medical coding and billing software. Hands-on education and practice is key for success.
The new web-based tool, CodeitRightOnline Curriculum, provides students the competitive edge to succeed with the valuable knowledge of online coding. Using the same user-friendly online medical coding and billing application available in the market today through CodeitRightOnline, the Curriculum version presents all of the essential coding information that students need.
“The job market is so competitive these days. Students are looking for tools and training that give them the edge they need to set themselves apart from the crowd. Medical Coding Programs that offer training in online coding and ICD-10 readiness are finding students more attracted to their programs,” says Sandy Krokaugger of CodeitRightOnline.
Available in both facility and non-facility-specific applications, CodeitRightOnline Curriculum is being offered to students and faculty for eight weeks. The web-based tool includes:
- ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM diagnosis codes
- CPT® procedure codes
- HCPCS Level II supplies and DME codes
- ICD-10-PCS procedure codes
- Cross-A-Code – ICD to CPT®, CPT® to ICD and ICD-9 to ICD-10
- Click-A-Dex™ – Technology that allows you to search through the indices quickly
- Build-A-Code™ – Understand how ICD-10 codes are constructed
- Personal and office notes for each code
- And more
Many medical coding and billing schools and programs take advantage of CodeitRightOnline software, such as Yale University, Excela Health Care, CDM Institute, Johns Hopkins University, US Oncology and more.
CodeitRightOnline, offered by Contexo Media, is a comprehensive application that combines more than 10 different coding and billing reference books into one compact online environment. Users can easily search for a specific CPT® code, research Medicare providers in a specific state and become familiar with the new ICD-10-CM/PCS code sets before 2013 mandatory implementation.
